The Vault: 10/28
October 28, 2016
By Jerry Shank
Virginia Scouting Director
The Vault is a periodic series that takes a look back at some of the top talent across the state that have been part of PBR. In just under two years of existence, PBR Virginia/DC has had over 200 event participants commit to colleges, along with the many more that we have seen through our non-stop, boots-on-the-ground approach to scouting across every state we cover. With The Vault, we give where they are now, along with the scouting report from the event they attended.
